F.Y.I. California Law Protects Independent Contractors

Here's a tidbit of fact about California's Fair Employment and Housing Act (FEHA).  It protects independent contractors from specific types of harassment at the workplace, (but not discrimination?).  Here's an excerpt from the California Department of Fair Employment and Housing.

"The California Fair Employment and Housing Act (Part 2.8 commencing with Section 12900 of Division 3 of Title 2 of the Government Code) and the Regulations of the Fair Employment and Housing Commission (California Code of Regulations, Title 2, Division 4, Sections 7285.0 through 8504):

Prohibit harassment of employees, applicants, and independent contractors by any persons and require employers to take all reasonable steps to prevent harassment. This includes a prohibition against sexual harassment, gender harassment, and harassment based on pregnancy, childbirth, or related medical conditions."  (Bold italics with underline are mine.)”
